Anti-LGBT activist Tony Perkins has claimed that Christians are now forced to live in “spiritual ghettos”.

Perkins, of the Family Research Council, made the outrageous claim in an interview with D James Kennedy Ministries.

He claimed: “We see this administration, we see the left creating these spiritual ghettos where we are forced into, confined to these areas, trying to quarantine faith so it’s more easily controllable.”

He continued: “People want us to check our Christian faith at the door of even public service; not just holding public office, but if you’re a fireman, a policeman, a teacher, a football coach, you’re supposed to leave your faith at home or within the confines of the church.

“[That is] totally contrary to what the founders envisioned and, I would argue, Frank, totally contrary to what God has called us to do.”

When he’s not supposedly living in the ghetto, the notorious Christian activist makes habit of making extremely disturbing claims about gay people – insisting that gays will attempt a ‘Christian Holocaust’.

He was slammed by Jewish groups after claiming that Christians are being sent to “camps”, and that soon gays are “going to start rolling out the boxcars to start hauling off Christians”

Perkins also compared gays to paedophiles, saying: “While activists like to claim that paedophilia is a completely distinct orientation from homosexuality, evidence shows a disproportionate overlap between the two. It is a homosexual problem.”

He also branded the ‘It Gets Better’ anti-bullying campaign “disgusting”, saying: “It’s part of a concerted effort to recruit [kids] into that lifestyle.”

Ahead of the Supreme Court court ruling in favour of equal marriage, Perkins threatened a “revolution” in the United States over the issue.
